eco-xotic E Series hanging

Hi, I read somewhere that there is a hanging kit in the works for the eco-xotic E Series? Any word? Right now, my light is sitting on a 80g rimless (with glass lid) and it is a pain to life the lamp every time I have to feed or clean. Is there a better way?

It's very simple, I had the cable cut longer because I do not know where the light really needs to be yet, algae demons and all.. measure the length and add 8" for the feral's. Home depot will cut it for you. Get 2 toggle eye hooks and 2 sets of feral's. You tube the feral crimping.. zip ties are self explanatory!

Some of us are running with 2 lights. It would be best if you create a hanger that can support 2 lights.
